Cruising as it used to be: Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Grand Voyages give you time to watch the world go by in style and comfort


Cruising the world


Grand Voyages are an ultimate indulgence; journeys of a leisurely duration, refl ecting the unhurried nature of travel from a bygone era. An opportunity to spend relaxing days at sea and explore exotic destinations not on the charts of an ordinary holiday.


Whether you decide on a voyage circumnavigating the globe, or sailing around South America, the ports of call read like a gazetteer of places you’d always promised yourself you’d visit. Places like Bora Bora, Tahiti, Callao, Antigua, Mumbai, Cochin, Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila, Cairns and Sydney on Black Watch’s 2012 World Cruise. Or Key West, New Orleans, Galveston, Montego Bay, Valparaiso, Punta Arenas, Port Stanley, Buenos Aires,


Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro in the case of Balmoral’s 2012 South American cruise.


The beguiling quality of the itineraries is matched by the timeless pleasures of life on board. Both Balmoral and Black Watch are beautifully appointed, human-scaled ships. More ocean-going country houses than fl oating leviathans, they are ideally suited to a longer voyage. Their more personal size lends itself to a more intimate experience and a relaxed atmosphere; the kind of place where you can put your feet up, be yourself and take an altogether more rounded view of the world.


Days at sea are the opportunity to get to know your fellow guests, form fi rm friendships and look forward to the thrilling adventures to come. As the weeks glide by, the intrepid band of adventurers can look back to past highlights, with many more still to come. And the variety of The ArtsClub activities gives the chance to develop a new passion, or rediscover an old one.


A Grand Voyage is a unique experience that many of our guests choose to repeat again and again.


For those who cannot spare the time for a cruise of several months’ duration, you can still enjoy part of the special event that is a Grand Voyage by choosing to leave or join the ship at various points, with the additional option of staying a few days in the embarkation or debarkation city to explore even further.


Black Watch visits Rio de Janeiro, left, in 2011, with Balmoral also calling there the following year. Both ships dock overnight, so there’s a chance to sample the city’s vibrant night life.


Cats were revered in ancient Egypt and worshiped as gods, left. Black Watch visits the country on its world cruise in 2012.
